  • Product Characteristics
    • Fat

      Fat provides 11% of total calories in PFD 2. The fat source is soy oil. Soy oil is a source of essential omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids: linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid; 100 g of PFD 2 provides approximately 2.7 g of linoleic acid and 320 mg of alpha-linolenic acid.


      PFD 2 does not contain protein or protein-building amino acids. Appropriate amino acid mixtures or other sources of protein must be supplied when feedings are prepared to make the product nutritionally complete. Mead Johnson Nutrition does not supply amino acid mixtures for use with PFD 2.


      Carbohydrate provides 89% of total calories in PFD 2. The carbohydrate blend is 86% corn syrup solids, 11% sucrose (table sugar), and 3% modified corn starch. The sucrose in the product helps improve the taste when amino acids from other sources are added. PFD 2 is suitable for someone with lactose intolerance.

      Vitamins and Minerals

      Vitamins and mineral levels in PFD 2 are appropriate for both children and adults.
